This no bake granola bar recipe is yummy, and packed with protein and carbohydrates for your athlete! Perfect on-the-go fuel for your athlete that Mom and Dad will enjoy just as much!


2 Cups quick oats

2 Cups Mom's Best Crispy Coca Rice Cereal (You can substitute this with Cocoa Pebbles Cereal, but the Mom's Best is the healthier option.)

1/2 Cup chocolate chips

1 Cup (heaping) peanut butter

1/2 Cup honey

1 teaspoon vanilla


In a large mixing bowl, stir together the oats, cereal, and chocolate chips. Set dry mixture aside.

In a small pot, heat the peanut butter, honey, and vanilla on low until melted. Stir often, and avoid over cooking because the peanut butter will scorch. Once that mixture is melted into a pourable form, pour into the dry mixture. Stir until all of the dry ingredients are coated. Make sure there are no dry clumps of oats and cereal. Once the stirring is done, pour the mixture into a 9x13" casserole dish. Evenly spread out the mixture then press it down with clean, damp hands. Wetting your hands slightly before pressing down the mixture will prevent it from sticking to your hands. Let chill for 30 minutes, then cut bars to your desired size.
